The Bauhaus agents Anja Edelmann und Friederike Holländer, Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin

project and contact

The members of the historical Bauhaus wanted nothing less than to reorganise everyday life, the living and coexisting in society. The issues surrounding the Bauhaus are more topical than ever before. The Bauhaus Agents make use of these, collaborating with students and other partners to develop and try out participative projects, educational media and educational programmes. For example, activating exhibition guides, a transparent guidance system or communicative seating could be created - enhancing the quality of the experience and benefitting all visitors.

Bauhaus Agents Programme is a unique phenomenon in the German museum scene, putting visitors at centre stage and integrating educational content into the museum concept and exhibition design from the outset. New museums of the 21st century are being developed as open and inviting spaces, where discursive dialogue can take place. Bauhaus Agents gains an exemplary status and prestige in this way, throughout Germany and the world: In addition to innovative educational formats and pioneering collaborative work between the museum and school, the focus is on developing structures and processes that link communication between all areas of the museums. After the programme has ended, the results, and in particular the processes involved, will be made available to other institutions, to serve as an example and role model. Together with eight partner schools, the two Berlin Bauhaus agents Anja Edelmann and Friederike Holländer will be developing educational formats and media for the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung, which will be available to all visitors afterwards.

The following Berlin schools are partners in the Bauhaus Agents Programme:

Archenhold-Gymnasium, Treptow-Köpenick
Bertolt-Brecht-Oberschule, Spandau
Carl-Kraemer-Schule, Mitte (Wedding)
Ernst-Litfaß-Schule, Reinickendorf
Nelson-Mandela-Schule, Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf
Otto-Nagel-Gymnasium, Marzahn-Hellersdorf
Paula-Fürst-Schule, Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf
Walter-Gropius-Schule, Neukölln

Bauhaus Agents is an initiative of the German Federal Cultural Foundation and the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung, Berlin, the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation and the Klassik Stiftung Weimar / bauhaus museum weimar.

New temporary location!

The Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung at Klingelhöferstrasse is closed, as the museum building will be renovated and receive an extension. We are sorry for the inconvenience!

At the end of June 2018 we opened the temporary bauhaus-archiv / museum für gestaltung, our temporary location at Knesebeckstraße 1-2 (U Ernst-Reuter-Platz), which includes our bauhaus-shop. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

We will continue to provide topical and historical informationen for you on this website.
